…a catch-all, including his shelved Humble Pie-tinged solo album…a host of bonus tracks and a live DVD
Classic Rock (July 2008)
Yet another superlative release by the dedicated team at Angel Air offers plenty of gems for fans of Steve Ellis.
The CD consists of 10 tracks plus a further seven bonus tracks. There’s plenty to enjoy here and what’s more apparent is that Ellis is perhaps one of the most experienced singers this country has produced…The sleeve notes put his whole career into context and offer some illuminating thoughts on his music. The first 10 tracks were recorded in ’77 while the bonus tracks were recorded six years later. His voice swings from wonderful Paul Rodgers style blues to softer pop and soul harmonies.
The accompanying DVD was recorded in Bradford in 2002 and comes complete with an interview with Mr. Ellis. The 10 handpicked songs on the DVD offers deep insight into his illustrious recording career.
He is most certainly genuine talent and this thoughtful collection is proof of that…****

…his passion for music-making still remains undimmed, and this two-disc package should appeal to anyone who’s ever enjoyed his work in the past…
Kevin Bryan, Stirling Advertiser (June 2008)
…his voice has an amazing power and texture. Steve Ellis is probably the most underrated vocalist this country has ever produced.
